How do you navigate adulthood?
That is the question 30-something year old Jeffrey must learn in order to not get lost in the complications caused by the love he has for two men. Meanwhile an old flame shows that love is more complicated than what is seen in the movies.
Will Jeffrey manage?
Or will he be forever dreaming of the perfect lover?
My Rating - 5 Stars!
Something Of Him is the first time I have read anything by Jonathan M. Lazar and I am beyond thrilled with it.
This story is so darn multi-layered, so raw and so realistic, making it gut-wrenching as well as hopeful. This book had me crying, screaming and swooning.
The story revolves around Jeffrey's life, over a span of years. It follows his heartbreak, his bad decisions, his good decision, and all the complications involved. It is not a happy story during the details, but it has an overall wonderful message.
Jonathan does a fantastic job of telling this tale through an ongoing flip between the past and the present. Make sure to pay attention, as to not miss anything.
I positively fell in love with this story. From the very beginning, I was completely hooked and ended up having to read late into the night.
I don't want to give anything away, but one thing that I find extremely impressive is the way the decision to make porn was discussed. I loved it and appreciated this strong viewpoint.
I highly recommend Something Of Him to anyone looking for a complicated emotional ride.
